September 30, 2016 – St. Louis, MO – Brewer Science was honored by the Missouri Association of Manufacturers with a Made in Missouri Leadership Award (MMLA) for Sustainability Leadership. The award honors innovative Missouri manufacturers and leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing.
Brewer Science received recognition for the development and implementation of a robust and strategic environmental program, which led to a program that was certified Zero Waste to Landfill The impact of this certification reinforces Brewer Science’s commitment to the environment, both internally and externally.
“Environmental responsibility does not require an ROI – it is a simple truth and it adds value to our company, but more importantly to the global community,” said Tom Brown, Executive Director, Corporate Production and Sustainability. “Reducing the environmental footprint at Brewer Science has also had a positive impact on the region and in our approach to business by allowing us to contain costs through improved efficiencies.”
“In addition to monitoring and managing our waste, Brewer Science has continued a partnership with the community by helping stakeholders properly dispose of their waste,” said Matt Beard, Director of Integrated Management Systems. “By working with the City of Rolla, the Ozark Rivers Solid Waste Management District, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, the Meramec Regional Planning Commission, and the Phelps County Commission, Brewer Science provides area residents with community collections that have enabled them to properly dispose of almost 811,000 pounds of waste over the past 11 years.”
